As with all things in life, if it's going to be a truly rewarding experience, it won't be easy or cheap. If it's easy and cheap, it won't be very rewarding.

It will pay off if the world as we know it comes to a end and everyone is running out of food.
A nieghbor asked me how hunting would really benefit me. I told him that line he said thats ok when you kill the deer i will just come steal it. I laughed and said ok then i will take my evil black rifle and kill you then take everything you leave behind. He said not if i shoot you first. I laughed again and ask how he figured he could do that when he was a liberal and did not own or know how to use a gun. he said when the time comes i'll figure it out.

My question is...why are you buying a new gun when you have a bow and I assume a rifle, when you haven't killed anything? Wish I had the money to just go out and buy new "toys"!

If our wives only knew how much we spent on hunting. I didn't have to buy any gear this year and have spent about $500.00. This includes but not limited to:
$100.00 NY license, $50.00 annual heat & electric donation to land owners, lots of food, beer, vodka, mixers, bottled water, pizza & wings, donuts, gas,...did I miss anything...I think that's about it...oh yea...great time with buddies hunting.....PRICELESS!

Yeah you really don't want to start calculating the cost of deer per pound. That is way I always chuckle when I hear someone say that hunt as MAIN way to feed their family. You have to look at the enjoyment factor, which is priceless. As someone else on here stated, look at it as mini vacations or theropy that allows us to function as normal humans.

WOW thats crazy. I'm in the clear. I just did the math,comes to about 75 cents a pound! Well, it might change,depends if i get the pork fat for free again of not and if i run out of food saver bags.
